The best lip enhancement treatment for you
Fillers in Dubai | 28 February 2019
Whether you have a “gummy” smile, wrinkles above your lips, downturned corners of your mouth or just want a luscious pout, there is an option to enhance your lips.
The most direct way to shape your lips and give them the pout, thickness and size that you want is by placing dermal fillers directly into the lips. These fillers usually last anywhere from 4-10 months. There is definitely a trend towards using other types of dermal filler “off-label” to achieve more structure, shaping and longer-lasting properties. Using hyaluronic acid fillers with different types of crosslinking will allow your lip results to last a little longer, typically 6-12 months. A longer lasting option is fat grafting to your lips. By obtaining fat through liposuction, filtering and processing the fat, then carefully placing the fat into your lips, your lips can be shaped. Fat grafting typically lasts for years, making this the most durable option for lip enhancement.
If you have fine lines around your upper and lower lips due to age or smoking, there are 2 major ways to reduce the visibility. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm Volbella or Restylane Silk, can be gently placed into these fine wrinkles to soften and eradicate them. These results will last anywhere from 6-12 months depending on the type of filler used and how quickly your body absorbs dermal filler over time. Another option to get rid of these fine lines is through skin resurfacing of some kind (chemical, laser, microneedling, radiofrequency and other types of energy). This procedure will cause the skin around your lips to exfoliate, revealing new skin below it that is smoother and has fewer wrinkles.
Regardless of how your skin is exfoliated, this procedure will probably have a longer recovery time than any filler product. The advantage of skin resurfacing is that results will last for months or years, with an occasional need for retreatment.
